    I blame Kwame, but there's lots of it to go around.

    On the bright side, it is impossible to conceive of a way in which the city can offer fewer or worse services than it currently offers to residents -- in schools, police, maintenance, or anything else.

    Kwame wasn't the problem. Kwame was a symptom of a decades-long problem.

    Do yourself a favor and watch the doc Detropia sometime.
    Very well-received by critics and even the academy.
    Not one line of narration in the film.

    Coleman Young gave the rolling ball a nice shove.

    The emergency manager stressed today that city services will still be running "as usual" tomorrow. Great.

    Average wait for emergency services in Detroit: 1 hour. National average: 11 minutes.

    A real shining moment for the leadership, a 300-year-old city and former industrial mecca finally being brought to its knees.

    thats capitalism. Turns out the American auto industry was a net loser for the country. Destroyed a city, the environment and made us dependent on Arab despots. Well done republicans.

    I just hope Michigan State can go to the Final Four and make everything all right again.

    Don't forget about the 40 percent of street lights that don't work!
